Mariah Carey gets carried away at Palm Springs gala

Mariah Carey lived up to her sometimes loopy reputation at the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards as she gave a long, rambling acceptance speech after being named Breakthrough Actress for her performance in "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire."

Carey, teetering in a skin-tight, black-beaded full-length Herve Leger gown, was escorted onto the stage Tuesday night, and at the podium, greeted her presenter and "Precious" director Lee Daniels with a little dance and a big hug.

Carey hesitated for a few seconds, looked to the ceiling, sighed and said, "Please forgive me, because I'm a little bit, um ..." An audience member finished the sentence for her with an obscenity, to which Carey replied, "Yeah!" adding a long, hearty laugh.

Keyshia Cole Engaged and Expecting First Child

Keyshia Cole has a lot to celebrate in the new year.

The 28-year-old singer is engaged to Cleveland Cavaliers player Daniel "Boobie" Gibson and the pair are expecting their first child, US reports.

The engagement was "an absolute surprise, Cole's rep told the magazine. "When he asked her to marry him, she was flabbergasted. He presented her with the ring and her mouth dropped in amazement."

Cole's rep would no confirm the news. Cole, who also starred in her own BET reality show — Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is — is readying her fourth album, due later this year.

Taylor Swift And Taylor Lautner Will Both Attend Wednesday's People's Choice Awards

Just as the world is mourning the end of the greatest teen romance of 2009 (if you're a Team Jacob fan, that is), it was announced that Taylor Swift will attend Wednesday's People's Choice Awards — as in the same ceremony that her former beau, Taylor Lautner already RSVP'ed to as well. Does anyone else sense an awkward run-in in the works?

Swift is up for three awards — Pop Artist, Country Artist and Female Artist — while Lautner is nominated for Favorite Breakout Movie Actor and Favorite Movie and On-Screen Team along with his "New Moon" costars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. (Kristen and Rob are also nominated in the Favorite Movie Actress and Actor categories, but there has been no confirmation yet as to whether they will attend the show.)

Kellan Lutz, Ryan Reynolds and Carrie Underwood are also set to appear. The show's host Queen Latifah will be performing, as well as Mary J. Blige and Cobra Starship with Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger.

As much as we're excited to see what the heck Cobra Starship and Nicole have planned (PS where's Leighton Meester?), we're really excited to see what will happen when the Taylors are in the same place now that they've called their romantic relationship off. It should at least be an interesting precursor to what may happen as the two embark on the publicity tour for "Valentine's Day."

Rihanna and Matt Kemp, Dominating Entertainment Headlines

Rihanna and her new beau, Los Angeles Dodger Matt Kemp, are the talk of the town. Pictures and videos of Rihanna and Kemp currently vacationing at a luxury resort in Cabo San Lucas has made its way around the world via the web. The two seem to be inseparable since Matt Kemp traveled to Dubai to support Rihanna in concert on New Year's Eve. According to inside sources, "Rihanna wants the world to know that she is happy with Matt." Kemp's agent Dave Stewart is quoted by CNN saying, "They've only had a few opportunities to be together, but those times have been fun."

We are happy for Rihanna, but we smell self promotion on the part of Matt Kemp. This is a great look for his career.
